Feather shield with coyotefeather pen Size: 25.5 cm / pen 22.5 cm
black ink, ballpoint
A stylish writing implement, which adds decorative flair to your business.
The bright blue feather pen is an elegant writing instrument for schoool or office and points to the animal, which is shown on this unique feather shield of the collection of the Weltmuseum Wien.
The blue animal represented on the shield was interpreted as the mythical Ahuitzotl, an Aztec ruler. Since the Aztecs represented this mythical animal with a smooth and moist skin, different from the appearance of the creature on the shield, it is not an Ahuitzotl that is represented, but probably a dog-like animal; the usual current interpretation is that it is a coyote.
